Established in 2013, we are a 501(c)(3) volunteer-run charity that provides essential hygiene products to organizations that assist the homeless, at-risk, low income and victims of violence.
Our efforts to collect, purchase and distribute personal care products such as soap, feminine care, shampoo, and toothbrushes serve meet basic human needs for individuals and families most in-need throughout Rhode Island.
The mission of Amenity Aid is to provide personal hygiene products to at-risk and in-need families and individuals.
Housing services struggle year round to obtain enough personal care products to meet their clients' needs. When hygiene products are out of stock, individuals and families seeking assistance forgo toiletries that are essential to good health and wellness.
Amenity Aid is a unique and valuable resource for these organizations because:
"The ability to obtain basic personal care necessities is critical to a person’s sense of self, personal respect and level of stress. Feelings of personal degradation have been reported by individuals when they were unable to afford basic household needs."
